The Jigsaw (South East) charity golf tournament, now in its third year, once again attracted some fierce competition as well as a former England football player

Nine teams of four participated in the annual charity golf tournament sponsored and organised by UBM – business printer and photocopier suppliers. And the special guest this year was former England footballer and Sky Sports correspondent John Salako, who joined UBM’s team and presented a charity auction.

The event took place on Friday 14th September 2012 at Horne Park Golf Club in South Godstone, Surrey. And if the competition wasn’t hotting up enough, a local BWM showroom pledged to provide a soft-top Mini to anyone who could achieve a hole-in-one on the eighth hole, a goal that was sadly not reached on this occasion.

Once all the teams had completed their rounds on this 18-hole course, it was on to the Clubhouse for some refreshments and a charity auction, with the top prize the chance to spend the day in the Sky Sports studio with Mr Salako during a premiership football match.

Well done to the winning team from UBM – Colin Cornhill, John Salako, Ron Smith and Gary Doors. And congratulations to all the winners who bid in the auction.

Carol Bason, Head of Service, Jigsaw (South East) said:

“A big thank you to all the amateur golfers who turned up and gave their support to our local charity – without people like you we simply would not be able to continue to provide support to bereaved families across Surrey and surrounding towns.

“It was great to have such a high-profile sportsman in the form of ex-England footballer John Salako joining in the event. John is a great sport and did a great job running the charity auction, as well as donating a top prize to spend a day with him presenting a premiership football match.”
